I saw a letter from David Cannan MHK on the site yesterday, suggesting that depositors in the IOM should attend Tynwald during various sessions this week. I cannot now find it. I am able to attend, are others going? If so which session/s are we focussing on, is there a meeting place etc. Thanks

Tynwald meetings this week

This is an extract from David Cannan's letter to which I believe you are referring-

..... "You will be aware that KSF (IOM) issues are being debate and determined in Tynwald on Tuesday (evening) 17th, Wednesday 18th and may be Thursday 19th February. The issues are

a) Supplementary agenda voting for the £94 million (Tuesday evening or first item Wednesday morning)
b) Question Time - immediately following (a). There are several KSF Questions.
c) Motion for a Committee of Inquiry; Wednesday afternoon.

I strongly recommend there are KSF depositors in the public gallery for these items, otherwise the impression will be given that there is lack of interest by the depositors. Guidance on timing of the debates can be obtained from the Clerk of Tynwald’s office 685515.

Thanks for that. It seems to me that Wednesday is the day we should be attending for question time and the motion for a committee of inquiry. Can Manx residents please indicate whether they are able to attend, I really feel we need a decent number of people, perhaps wearing the same colour or something to identify us. Please get in contact so we can arrange to meet. Thanks

See link to letter from David Cannan. I asked that IoM residents should attend, but this is for them to arrange - I am back in Bahrain now!
